Expecting / L'attente

International Short Film Competition

The birth of a child is supposedly the most beautiful moment in life. But for Céline, it will also be a tough trial of her self-assurance. While her partner is waiting for the medication to kick in, she is walking along the maternity ward corridors. How to deal with the conventionally male role of silent support? The film sensitively depicts all the blues, affection and fragility of expecting.
